We received our first mail from home at Athens. We are now about to Crete, nearly half way to Alexandria, on a fine, fast sailing ship. I am now con ductor of a tourist party. A Russian lieutenant-general joined us on our way from Italy to Greece. We stopped at the same hotel and I bought a ticket for three, getting a reduction of 24 francs ($6.00) from Athens to Alexan dria. He expects to go with us to Pal estine. He has bought a lot of diction aries and I am teaching him English. He talks Persian, French and Italian. He is a very large man. He keeps say ing to me, “Go steady Georg.” Steady is the word he found in the dictionary for slow. We have given up third class travel ing and now go second class. We have a fine state room, an extra bunk and a lounge. Since we left Italy our meals are served in courses and sometines eight courses. I may regain some of the flesh I lost. I wear a \ size smaller collar now. We staid only two days at Athens but we saw all the ruins, walk ed among them, the museums—two of them, the university, four .cathedrals. The royal palace I walked right in and saw the throne. George kept saying I would get arrested, but I made friends with a young soldier and he took us to a guard, so we got in. And we tramp ed all over the city. Leaving Athens we took a carriage to Paraens, giving us a five mile drive, thus affording us a good view of the surrounding country. Well, Athens is a nice, clean, modern city, but outside of what we saw there is nothing of in terest in the city to see. Well, the fare here is not so high. The fare from Athens to Alexandria, second class, is only $14.50. I had another adventure. I went down to look at the third class quarters. I got George to go, but he stood on the stairs and immediately went back. By the time I got up the stairway an offcer was closing the door, but I. managed to get out. Well, it was an awful sight—no bunks, one large room, floor completely covered with men, women and children, lying about in any old way—mostly Greeks and Turks. Well, this is an ideal day. It is dif ficult to confine myself to reading or writing. There is a large promenade deck, the sun is shining down, the air is balmy and we are going about 18 knots an hour. We are now about the place where Paul sailed south of Crete on his way to Konae, described in Acts 27. 1 have just read it, and looked at Crete a couple of miles away and mark ed the 7th, Bth and 13th verses. lam now going to start reading Genesis and Exodus. I also read Paul’s epistle to Titus, bishop of Crete in Paul’s time. We do not expect to stay in Egvpt more than four or five days, so expect to be in Jerusalem about the first of April. I want to gain three or four days on the trip, as I planned at first. I will mail this letter in Alexandria to morrow if possible. The boat is rocking so it is hard to write. lam enjoying this part of the trip immensely, living like a prince— fine state room, elegant table fare, ideal weather for a sailor. I thank God for His blessings. Monday, 2p. m., on the train from Alexandria to Cairo. G. Kenneth Maclnnis. Ordained Pries; in Switzerland. The young deacon, Reverend Mr. Clement P. Sweeney, who was raised to the holy priesthood on Saturday, April Ist, in Fribourg, Switzerland, by order of his bishop, the Right Reverend P. J. Garrigan, D. D., of Sioux City, is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Miles Sweeney of Sheldon, lowa. Father Sweeney made his classical and philosophical studies at St. Joseph’s college, Dubuque. The following year he was sent by his bishop to the famous Catholic University of Switzerland, where the arduous and successful stud ies of many years were crowned with the reception of the Sacrament of Holy Orders conferred by the Right Rever end Abbott of St. Maurice, Tibular Bishop of Bethlehem, amid the thoughts of his honored parents and relatives in America, accompanied with the best wishes of his many friends and his brother students in Fribourg. The love of travel that prompted Father Sweeney in his college days to explore the towering Rockies and sub limely picturesque scenery of the far west, did not desert him in the many opportunities he had of seeing Europe from the snow-covered regions of the Scandinavian peninsula to the sunny iand of southern Italy, whether he now goes to visit the Holy Father and enjoy the many privileges of saying mass in the famous churches and shrines of Rome and elsewhere in southern Eu rope, before he returns to dear old Sheldon to celebrate his first solemn mass.—Sheldon (Iowa) Sun. More Interurban Talk. An increase of nearly three million dollars in the capital stock of the Rock ford and Interurban company was voted in a meeting of the stockholders, held on March 21, according to the certifi cate filed at Rockford Saturday. When asked the significance of the increase, General Manager Sparks re plied that he was not familiar with the plans of the company in that respect. In view of the extension of the in terurban lines south and east from Madison, it is possible that the com pany may contemplate the extension of a line from Janesville in the direction of Madison. Should this be the plan of the company, the people living in Rock River valley would enjoy an interurban traffic and convenient transportation which at present is hardly possible to obtain from the railroads. Since most of the railroads run east and west, an extended north and south interurban system would be a convenience greatly needed by the people of southern Wis consin and northern Illinois. ♦♦♦ : Public Library Notes. “Touching Second,” a baseball book for baseball enthusiasts, by John Ev ers, a baseball player, will be enjoyed by all, young and old.

There are interesting accounts of her early life and education and the influ ences which led to her life work. Congregational Church Briefs. There will be two union services on Sunday.

Green wood died at his home in this city shortly after 2 o’clock Monday after noon, aged 64 years, 10 months and 7 days. Nearly two weeks ago he was stricken with pneumonia from which it was believed he was in a fair way to recover, when other complications set in and later heart failure was the im mediate cause of his death. James Edw T ard Greenwood was born at Skanadoe, N. Y., June 10, 1846. As a young man he came to Wisconsin and made his home for a time with his uncle, William Zimmerman, near this city. He was united in marriage to Sarah A. Maltpress, April 22, 1885, and has ever since made his home in Edger ton. To this union seven children were born Grace, Leah, Ethel, Thomas, Helen, Edgar and Harold. A brother, Thomas A., and a sister, Mrs. Baird of Spokane, Wash., also survive him. The latter and her daughter, who were vis iting in Michigan, were able to be pres ent at the funeral. The daughter Leah departed for Cal ifornia last week and was unable to join the mourning family in the burial of the father. The sympathy of a large circle of friends is with the family in their bereavement. The deceased was a member of Ful ton lodge F. & A. M. and of the Mod ern Woodman. Funeral services were held from the M. E. church at 2 p. m. Wednesday, Rev. F. C. Richardson of Lake Geneva officiating, and the re mains were given a Masonic burial in Fassett cemetery. WILLIAM G. NAGLE. William G. Nagle died Wednesday morning, April 19, at 3 o’clock, at the farm home in the town of Fulton, be ing upon the same premises where he was born June 8, 1870. Upon the death of the father, Reuben Nagle, which occurred July 25, 1896, the de ceased assumed management of the homestead farm in which he continued up to one year ago when he was com pelled to retire from active duty on ac count of tuberculosis, which disease had gained too great headway to yield to medical treatment. To the aged mother and only sister, Mattie, the loss falls most heavily. The funeral will take place Friday afternoon at 2 o’clock from the M. !E. church, con ducted by Rev. F. C. Richardson of Lake Geneva. Interment in Fassett cemetery. Shelley, Anderson & Farman Copyright Hart Schaffner A Marx VOY’LL have a thoroughbred A look in the clothes we offer you.
